The NEW MEXICO WATER SAMPLING CERTIFICATION STUDY GUIDE has been created as a tool to assist those who collect water system samples in preparation for taking Water Sampling Technician certification exams. This book is not intended to be a complete reference manual for technical information. Its purpose is to guide the reader to study material for each of the major subject areas for Level 1 and Level 2 certification. There is no implied claim that this study guide covers every possible point on which a technician may be tested. However, it is intended to be comprehensive in its coverage of the essential information for each exam, based on standard Need-To-Know criteria.

This study guide is divided into seven chapters. Each chapter in the study guide has study questions and sample test questions that are intended help the individual focus on the type of information that is covered in an exam. The study questions are designed to direct the reader to exam information that is related to the chapter topics. No answer sheet is provided. You will have to look them up.

The Appendices contain helpful information regarding sampling schedules and the development of sample siting plans for the system.

The material dealing with sample collection has been referenced to approved EPA methodology for sample collection and preservation. Information regarding the completion of the various sample request forms has been referenced to the New Mexico Department of Health – Scientific Laboratory Division.
